Vintage Pink, Green and Gold Trimmed Glassware.

I always knew that one day I would inherit my mother's and grandmother's jewelry but I never thought I'd be more excited to inherit my grandmother's and great-grandmother's fancy dishes, (that's what she always called them).

I've always loved the idea of grouping together dishes by color in almost a rainbow display, so with a lot of the same color hues, that's what I decided to do. 
Starting with her favorite, pink.

Finished Guest Room

Last year, my oldest son surprised us one day by announcing that he decided to join the Air Force. After he swore in, his next big announcement was that he was going to be leaving for basic training in two weeks. Even though I was extremely proud, knowing that he would be leaving so soon, made me an emotional wreck. My oldest son was grown up and off to start his own adventure. 
After he left, I needed something to occupy my mind, something that would motivate me to get out of bed. That's when I decided to turn my son's old room into a guest room. Since we have only lived in our home for about three years, my son never really settled in, I think that he knew he would be leaving soon. 

When trying to plan on what exactly to do with the new spare room, I took into mind that when my son came home, he would need a place to stay so I didn't want to make the room too feminine. I also had a lot of vintage furniture and decor that I had been wanting to find a place for in our home. 
Everything I added to this room has some sentimental value.

Vintage Home Decor & Bistro Tile

I love finding new charming accents for my home. I am always changing things around, rearranging my bookcases, shelves or table decor. 

These cheese plates are some that I found in a second-hand shop along with these brass candlesticks. 
These ceramic tile canisters, from Anthropologie are my new favorite kitchen accents. The Bistro tile reminds me of a cafe in Paris that I've always wanted to visit. Maybe one day I'll get the opportunity.

My Favorite Janessa Leone Hats & My New Favorite Shopping App

"Wherever she went she was on the lookout for interesting things." ~Kate Spade
I love this quote because I am that girl. I am always looking for something unique or interesting for either my home or my closet. One of the things I am always looking at is hats. 
I have always loved hats but had a hard time finding a hat that I liked in every way such as the style, color, shape, fit and quality. 

The one brand that I have grown to love is Janessa Leone.

My Pantry Project

About three years ago, my husband and I built our forever home and at the time, when designing certain areas of our house, I felt rushed, for instance, our pantry. I have disliked our pantry since we moved in. It always felt cluttered, plain and after time passed, the shelves started to look dingy. I tried washing the shelves and even adding shelving paper, which would tear in some areas and start to peel off, which drove me crazy. So finally, I decided to re-paint our pantry. 
The first challenge was to decide on what color to use. I really like clean, simple colors I found on Pinterest but realistically, I know that light colors just wouldn't work for me. So, after a lot of thought, I decided to consider a darker color.
